  • HEALING ENVIRONMENTS WHAT'S THE PROOF? by Barbara J. Huelat

    Overview: Healing Environments What s the Proof? Americans believe when they become sick, diseased or injured, they need medical attention to be cured. We have long associated curing with healing; believing that to be cured is to be healed. It is our expectation that medical facilities are healing environments.

    However, are they? Can a place heal? Can it be proved? Healing environments, continue to be defined and with new qualities including safety, security, accessibility, sustainable and now evidence-based design . Evidence-based design has become the new design tool of choice. Barriers can be mitigated, allowing elements such as better lighting, art programs and even water features to be specified with evidence that these amenities can actually improve patient outcomes.

    Evidence-based design, like evidence-based medicine has the power to move design to a new level of understanding and value. This book provides defining evidence that supports the latest scientific proof regarding the power of healing environments.
